Dear Neighbors and Property Owners of Forest Edge Cluster,
The FECA Board is delighted to announce that after a six month process, we have hired and are now contracted with Associa Community Management Company to handle our cluster's bookkeeping and financial records.
All property owners will receive a letter of introduction from the company within the next few weeks. In it, property owners and managers will receive information about the new payment process for cluster fees.
Property owners will have the option of paying by personal check, direct debit, using an online billpayer or paying by credit card.
Dues will continue to be collected quarterly; late fees will continue to be assessed sixty days after the due date (January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1) for each quarter.
Homeowners with questions are invited to contact the board at email@example.com once those letters are received.
The FECA Board extends special thanks to Brenda Abrams and to Mitch Reiners for their extraordinary efforts in reviewing proposals, attending interviews and meetings, and in helping us write the strongest contract possible with Associa.
We are confident that taking this step will safeguard the financial interests of every member of our cluster association.
A giant leap into the 21st Century for us all!
Forest Edge Board Members.
Please find the agenda attached for the Board meeting on Tuesday. Please join us!
The Board of Forest Edge Cluster announces we will schedule tree removal and pruning in the cluster to be completed in the fall of 2019.
Tree health and maintenance has been an on-going project here in the cluster for many years. Every four years the Board conducts a tree study, and each year the Board hires an arborist to assess our trees and to recommend actions, including pruning, cabling, and removal. This requires several thousand dollars from the cluster’s annual budget and is done to protect our lives and our property.
Last summer we hired SavaTree Arborists to evaluate the health and safety of every tree within striking distance of homes, parking areas, tot lots, streets, and common grounds with paths, lawns, and benches. On April 23, 2019, we finished the 2019 walk-through with their arborist and finalized our list of trees for removal and pruning for 2019.
Our next steps require that we publish this notice to all cluster residents on our website and through Nextdoor; submit an application for this work to the Reston Association Design Review Board (DRB); submit our Request for Pricing (RFP) to local vendors; and then sign a contract for completion of the work.
Residents and homeowners are invited to review the full Tree Study posted on the cluster’s website or through the on-line map at http://arcg.is/1HeiSr.
The FECA Board will publish dates for work on-site once those are finalized.
Residents with questions are invited to contact the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cluster clean up will be rescheduled for 6/1/2019.
With all of the rain over the past year we have had major issues with the tot-lot on Greenmont Court. The tot-lot was one of the areas we were planning on working but we had two separate inspections and instructed to hold off on doing any work for another month to allow the area to dry as much as possible. Please plan on coming out and joining your neighbors on 6/1/2019 for breakfast and a day of sprucing up Forest Edge Cluster.
Please find the agenda attached for the meeting tomorrow night. Our lawyer will be in attendance for everyone to ask their questions, so please come join!
